Annatto (natural) – natural madder powder is an extract prepared from Rubia tinctorium, Rubia cordifolia, and Morinda citrifolia. It contains the organic compound alizarin, which gives the roots their deep red colour. In cold process soap making, it will produce beautiful light pink to deep red and terracotta tones through burgundy and even mauve. Madder grows wild throughout India, Southeast Asia, Turkey, Europe, south China, parts of Africa, Australia and Japan. It has been used for centuries as a dye for textiles and cosmetic products. Traces of madder have even been discovered in King Tut's tomb and in the ruins of Pompeii.
